at the university of denver in denver, colorado. i'm jim lehrer of the pbs "news hour," and i welcome you to the first of the 2012 presidential debates between president barack obama, democratic nominee, and former massachusetts governor, mitt romney, republican nominee. the debates are sponsored by the commission on presidential debates. tonight's 90 minutes will be about domestic issues and will follow a format designed by the commission. there will be six roughly 15-minute segments with two-minute answers for the first question, then open discussion for the remainder of each segment. thousands of people offered suggestions on segment subjects or questions, via the internet and other means, but i made the final selections, and for the record, they were not submitted for approval to the commission or the candidates. the segments as i announced in advance will be three on the economy, and one each on health care, the role of government, and governing. with an emphasis through out on differences, specifics, and choices. both candidates will also have two-minute closing statements. the audi

to denver and go to two npr reporters, scott horsily, has the reporting from president obama's campaign, and ari shapiro has been traveling with mitt romney. hi, guys. ari shapiro, did your guy do what he came to do tonight? >> well, mitt romney had to stand on the stage and look presidential and a plausible alternative to president obama. he certainly cleared that bar. i think in many people's thought he went beyond, control the stage, giving memorable lines and standing up to the president, and occasionally the moderator in kind of an aggressive way. >> woodruff: scott what, about the president? you've been out on the trail listening to him. what differences? what similarities did you see tonight? >> well, he was really trying to get mitt romney to give some specifics about what het would mean for his tax pran. what would his changes to dodd-frank mean? what would his repeal of obamacare mean? he didn't hear the specifics. and i think the memorable line from president obama is, is romney keeping these details quiet because they're too good for the middle class? >> woodruff: are you--

is for sure. the debate this week in denver on wednesday is a big deal for the romney campaign. he has to make his case, and he has to mak his case he's a better candidate than barack obama. he has to throw some punches. he can't just kind of go in there sort of apologetically and be very gentle with obama. he has to really throw some punches and show people why he's the better candidate. i think a lot of these polls are a little bit overstated. i think the democrats have been oversampled in a lot of polls, and i don't think there's that huge of a gap between romney and obama. nonetheless, he has to make a really strong stand in the first debate. this is probably the most important debate for him at this point in the campaign. >> i don't want to let that statement about polls go unanswered. eugene robinson's piece today is about what he calls the new conspiracy. republicans diluted that there are skewed polls. paul ryan was the latest one to join on the bandwagon last night talking about wisconsin. >> i don't believe that particular poll. i won't get into the methodologies about it. >> they we

and you elected to go last. so you have a closing two minutes mr. president. >> obama: jim i want to thank you, and i want to thank governor romney because i think this was a terrific debate and i want to thank the university of denver. four years ago we were going through a major crisis and yet my faith and confidence in the american future is undiminished and the reason is because of its people. because of the woman i net in north carolina who decided at 5 to go back to school because she wanted to inspire her daughter, and now has a job because of the training she has gotten. because of the company in minnesota who was willing to give up salaries and perks for their employees. the auto workers in detroit take pride in building the best car in the world because it gives them that sense of pride that they are helping to build america. so how do we build on those strengths, and everybody i'm proposing for the next four years, in terms of developing american energy or closing loopholes for companies shipping jobs overseas and focusing on companies creating j
